Just curious if certain arch's require older versions of gcc? Surely
that's not the case, but hopefully this patch wont surprise anyone.

It might be worthwhile to see where else in the kernel has
/gcc\s+[0-9]/g as I'm sure there's other old-gcc workarounds that can
go too (in follow up patches).

Thanks for sending. This helps us ship newer compiler features for
which older compiler support is difficult/impossible.
